Abstract:
A Science Prodigy and Now CEO at Age 25

Debut of Technology Designed to Change the World One Atom at a Time

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Opens Doors to State-of-the Art Nanotechnology Facility in Pennsylvania’s New “Silicon Valley” Interviews Available with Founder

Malvern, PA | Posted on June 18th, 2009

Who: Carbon Nanoprobes, Inc./CEO and Founder Brian Ruby

What: Five years in the making and with millions invested, Carbon Nanoprobes, Inc. is opening its doors for an inside view of how one firm has harnessed the intricate technology of the future.

· Twenty-five year old founder and CEO Brian Ruby will demonstrate what some call "mind-bending science," discuss his life story* and tell why he came from Seattle to PA.

· Today, Nanotechnology is playing a vital role in the region as well as the nation's economy. This cutting edge science is already having an impact in the way products and services are developed in terms of cost, precision and efficiency. Nanotechnology is also expected to have major implications for medical fields - like cancer research, and play a key role in robotics, solar energy, and the nation's quality of life.

· Just Imagine: Golf balls that fly straighter, wrinkle-free clothing, portable labs providing instant analysis of medical conditions, cosmetics with skin-healing properties, scratch resistant paints, and ultra precise drug agents - all part of the nano world of current and future possibilities.



Where: Carbon Nanoprobes, Inc., 363 Phoenixville Pike, Malvern, PA 19355; website: cnprobes.com

When: Thursday, June 25th, from 6:30 pm. to 9:00 p.m. Cocktails and food will be served.

*Bio of Founder: He imagined the future that is now. Twenty-five year old Brian Ruby achieved recognition for his insight into the complex field of applied science - beginning at age 15 when he interned at IBM's T.J. Watson Research Lab. There he learned how to make carbon nanotubes: he went on to win numerous awards at science fairs and a prestigious award from Intel. From there, Ruby worked at Progenics Pharmaceuticals on HIV vaccine research involving the study of microscopic proteins. Then - at age 22, as a sophomore engineering student at Columba University - this remarkable science prodigy came up with an innovative method of mass producing carbon nanoprobes, which led him to file for a patent and start his company.

More: Nanotechnology is an intriguing hybrid that draws on the most sophisticated quantum physics and molecular chemistry. "Nano" is Greek for "dwarf" and looks at matter between 1 and 100 nanometers in size. Considered the science of small things, a nanometer is a billionth of a meter - barely the size of 10 hydrogen atoms in a row. A human hair, for example, generally measures 80,000 nanometers across. Today, researchers are hard at work developing new nanotechnology applications across a wide range of industries, including biopharmaceuticals, advanced materials, agriculture, electronics, energy, defense, and transportation.
